USC Aiken, like most other universities at this time, is finalizing a plan to distribute emergency grants from the CARES Act to currently enrolled students who meet the federal guidelines for eligibility. So that the Office of Financial Aid can process these relief funds more quickly, we ask that students refrain from calling the office about CARES funds for now. All eligible students will receive an email in the upcoming week from the Office of Financial Aid with further instructions.

Thank you for your patience as we work to distribute the funds while also ensuring compliance with the rules as set forth by the US Department of Education. Please know we are moving as quickly as possible to get these funds to eligible students.

We hope you are staying well!
